Day 6 – 13: Own travel arrangements

We’ve not planned this part of the journey for you – it’s you, the van and the open road! For inspiration please see Chris’s blog from when he visited this area with his family.

Highlights in the area include Death Valley and the mighty Yosemite National Park – check out the local Visitor Centres for guided hikes and information on the local flora and fauna. Mammoth Lakes is a good stopping point with a host of outdoor activities– this is a year-round resort with skiing throughout the winter and hiking, cycling and watersports during the summer.

Famous for world-class wineries, the Napa Valley is just to the north of San Francisco and is a gourmet destination, matching amazing local produce and wines.

San Francisco is not to be missed – with Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge, Union Square, the tram system, the bohemian districts and a cosmopolitan feel, why not stop for a night or two? From here, hit the Pacific Coast Highway south, and explore the towns and coast scenery around Carmel, Monterrey and San Luis Obispo en route to your final destination, Los Angeles.

Campsites with electrical hook-ups can be booked in advance and we recommend you plan this in advance if travelling during US holidays or over the summer, which is considered peak season.

Included: Campervan rental

Info

This trip is best suited for travel during May-September/early October due to the roads in and around Yosemite, which are often closed over the winter due to snow and poor conditions. If you want to travel outside of the summer months alternative routes would be required, or we can arrange car hire and hotels instead.

Over the summer months campsites and accommodation around the National Parks are very busy and will sell out in advance, so booking before you arrive is essential.

This itinerary is purely a suggestion, and can be tailor-made to your requirements, so please contact us with your dates and requests and we’ll put together a bespoke quotation for you.
